parallel port driver

I wanted to play a bit with driver coding in userspace, and understood that
we don't have any working parallel port driver (was the lpr in mach ever

So just wrote a simple parallel port driver for the Hurd that works on
userspace. It has some deficiences (see the TODO), but you can safely print
through it. (and if we had a printer daemon, we could even print sanely with
Chair Returns ;))

Please take a look at it. If it looks fine, i can write a patch to integrate
it in Hurd's source.

oh, and thanks Wolfgang for your nice Hurd Hacking guide!
